So where are we today? The public and health care community are focused on the scope, diversity and quality of provider networks associated with health care products and coverage. People like you and organizations like UnitedHealth Group are driving ever higher levels of sophistication in how provider networks are composed and compensated. That means everything is open to new ideas and innovation. And your expertise in provider networks can help us build in the next phase of evolution. In this managerial role, you'll use your knowledge and analytical skills to help determine how clinical providers group up by specialty and service line.
